|Bio and Links|
I live in Newton, Iowa and will be happy to locate and photograph markers in my area.|
I retired from the Air Force August 1 2009 after 26 years of service as a Master Sergeant. I am also a member of the Rapid City, South Dakota Masonic Lodge #25 and the NAJA Shriners.
Photography is my hobby/passion. I will try to fulfill as many requests as possible with quality photos. I enhance all photos to provide the best quality I can.
I trim grass covering markers and sweep off debris to enable a clear view of the marker. I photograph the entire marker as well as a close up of the name inscription. Past experience I have learned people like to see the entire marker and not just a close up of the inscription. I also photograph the back of the marker if there is any inscription on the back.
I NEVER rub chalk or other substances on markers. Chalk will DAMAGE a marker and speed the deterioration of the stone. I use a foil technique that uses aluminum foil to enhance the inscription. This technique does not damage markers and actually works better than chalk.
I can e-mail the full size photos upon request.
I recently became a member of the Jasper County, Iowa Cemetery Commission.
I am interested in my family genealogy surnames of Bickle, Baker, Hoy, Kintz, Plumb, Rinard, Bladwin and several others.
I have entered memorial pages for all

Hello and thank you for starting a memorial for my cousin. See memorial 45046893 on Fannie Bushey.
I see that you don't have any dates for Fannie. She was born in Averill, West Virginia sometime in March or April 1870.
Her mother, Rebecca E. Klink Bushey moved to Newton, Iowa, probably with her husband, Michael Nicholas Bushey. Michael was injured in the Civil War as was listed as a retired farmer in the 1870 census.
Michael is buried in Greencastle, PA where he was originally from. His headstone states that he was "killed by Indians". From what I have been able to ascertain, he was killed in Colorado.
Fannie does not show in the 1880 census, so I can only assume that she died sometime prior to that census.
Thank you for all you do,
Heidi (Bushey) Howe

Thank you so much for the picture of my 3GGM'S gravestone. I had gotten an earlier picture, but this foil technique is so much better.
Thank you very much for taking the picture of Arthur's grave marker
